ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENT FUNDS

  • Untapped opportunities. Strategic diversification.

  • I Cap Financial Services Asset Management pioneered the Alternative Investment Funds (AIF) in India. Each of our alternative funds reaches beyond the mainstream investment universe and taps into unique opportunities regardless of boundaries. AIFs offer a chance for our investors to go off the beaten track and invest in securities that are unavailable to the common investor. Real estate, venture capital, hedge funds, commodities, pre-IPO placements and derivative contracts can bolster the portfolio, mitigate risk and spur returns. While AIFs can also invest in listed equities, the structure allows for investments in securities which are unavailable under the traditional mutual fund platform. Alternative Investment Funds are offered as private placement. For more details, please write to us at www.I Capfinserv.com ------- In India alternative investment funds (AIFs) are a relatively new concept and they have been described in detail in Regulation 2 (1) (b) SEBI (Alternative Investment Funds) Regulation, 2012. As per the current definition, AIFs are a privately held and managed pool of investment fund of either domestic or foreign origin. AIFs, as per current regulations, are investments that are organised in the form of an LLP (limited liability partnership), corporate body, company or trust. ------ For all intents and purposes, SEBI currently recognizes AIFs as private investment funds which are not covered by the current jurisdiction of any regulatory body currently operating in India. Being a private investment fund, AIFs are not available through IPOs or other forms of public issue which are applicable to Collective Investment Schemes and Mutual Funds that are registered with SEBI. Thus AIF regulations are completely separate from other fund management regulations including but not limited to SEBI (Mutual Funds) Regulations, 1996 and SEBI (Collective Investment Schemes) Regulations, 1999. As per existing AIF regulations, these private investment funds have been divided into 3 unique categories – Category I, Category II and Category III and the minimum qualifying amount for these schemes is Rs. 20 crores. The only exception to this rule is angel funds that have lower qualifying criteria in terms of fund corpus.
